I removed anything that is questionably separate, but all those mushrooms now pictured are the same in every feature, and the pores bruised blue lightly and slowly, the texture is EXTREMELY TOUGH compared to edulis.

A royally mixed collection?

Most of those look like B. regineus, but I do see the blue pores on image 64651. However, the big one at the bottom of that image looks like B. regineus. The blue stainer in the upper right could well be B. regius sensu Thiers. Maybe you should just add a comment to that image.

pores turn blue, doesn’t that mean they aren’t edulis/regineus?
